Douglas Hubert, CET, said his primary reasons for seeking an academic career are the opportunities to teach and students and develop new educational materials/techniques. His academic background, teaching experience and career in computers make him well-prepared to teach introductory programming and computer science courses as well as more advanced courses on operating systems, distributed systems, databases, software engineering, data structures and algorithms. Over the last decade, Hubert has dedicated much of his time to teaching and developing courses and educational materials. As a result, he has acquired extensive teaching experience at the undergraduate level as an instructor and professional tutor for several courses at University of Akron. More importantly, he has been a central figure in the development of several of these courses and has created teaching materials that have been adopted by many courses, both within and beyond the University of Akron.
